Location

This tour will take you to many places in Vietnam. Starting in Ho Chi Minh City, the tour will continue to many areas such as the Mekong Delta, Cambodia border, Central Highlands, and enchanting cities such as Hoi An, Hue, Sapa, and end in Hanoi.

Hoi An

Once a major Southeast Asian trading post in the 16th and 17th centuries, the seaside town Hoi An is basically a living museum featuring a unique mixture of East and West in the form of its old-town architecture. Among the architectural heritage, stand Chinese temples, a Japanese-designed bridge, pagodas, wooden shop-houses, French colonial houses and old canals.

Though large-scale trading had long moved elsewhere Hoian has been successful in preserving and restoring its charming roots and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in December 1999. Hoi An riverside is the best place to be at night as the area is lit by quaint and old-fashioned lanterns, making it an atmospheric and beautiful spot.

For those who love sea, sun, and sand, Hoi An offers two lovely beaches five kilometers away from the town center – a sort of holiday within a holiday. Hoi An is known for its great food, fun shopping, skilled tailors, friendly people and cozy atmosphere – all key characteristics that draw people to this picturesque town.

Phong Nha

Phong Nha is noted for its cave and grotto systems as it is composed of 300 caves and grottoes. A 2009 survey brought the total discovered length of the cave system to about 126 kilometers, with many areas still not well explored.

The Son Doong Cave, which was discovered in the 2009 survey by British and Vietnamese explorers, is considered the largest cave in the world. Even before this discovery, Phong Nha held several world cave records, including the longest underground river as well as the largest combined caverns and passageways.

The park derives its name from Phong Nha Cave, containing many fascinating rock formations, and Ke Bang forest. The plateau on which the park is situated is probably one of the finest and most distinctive examples of a complex karst landform in Southeast Asia.

This national park was listed in UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 2003 for its geological values as defined in its criteria viii. In April 2009, the world’s largest cave was discovered by a team of British cave explorers of the British Caving Association led by a local farmer.
